Villa Villacolle is a house where lives a family that hosts small children (zero to five years old) abandoned by their families. This is a unprofessional Casa Famiglia, on a voluntary basis. We look for volunteers that help in all the things that needs to be done in such a house : Taking care of children (when there are children in our house) ; Cleaning ; Cooking ; Taking care of the garden ; Preparing wood for the winter ; Feeding the horse ; Helping with honey bees. We can arrange with the volunteers the best timetable for both us and them. We can be flexible, but usually we need help in the morning and in the afternoon, and sometimes in the evenings. The volunteers could carry out the voluntary services from Monday to Friday, from 10:00 to 15:00 and then from 17.30 to 19.30. This timetable can change according to the needs of the children that we are hosting.
We will provide an independent apartment in the village (very close to the project). The volunteers can have their meals with us, we are vegetarians, but they will also have a kitchen in the apartment, so sometimes they can also cook and eat their own food at home.
Campore is a small village in the mountains (600 mt), 25 km from Sestri Levante on the sea side. There are very few people living here, and most of them are quite old. Varese Ligure is a more lively town and it is 10 km from here. This area is called the Biological Valley, there are no factories here, but a lot of nature.
Since the village is small, calm and there are very few young people living hereby, we think it could be interesting to host two volunteers at the same time, and not only one. We look for volunteers who like a simple and quiet life and that want to join the daily life of an Italian family.
The "Associazione per la formazione, gli scambi e le attività interculturali" -AFSAI was founded in 1958 as an independent, legally registered organisation. It joined ICYE in 1978. There is a national office in Rome plus regional groups run by co-workers, most of them former exchangees.
Voluntary service placements are mainly in the social work field, exceptionally may include environmental projects. Actual placements may be at kindergartens, in projects working with the disabled and the elderly, rehabilitation of drug-addicts.
